Breakfast cafe in London where meals can be free of charge

WALTHAMSTOW, London- Eggs & Bread Café in Walthamstow is never a regular brunch spot. Here, customers sit down and enjoy their hearty breakfast free of charge. This is one of the dozens of non-for-profit "just-pay-what-you-like" cafes in the UK.

Customers can donate as much as they like as they visit, and if they don't shell out any, there's no problem as well.

Customers can pop their money in this discreet donation box mounted right on the wall, so no one can really know how much they've paid - or not paid.

The menu is simple: toast, porridge, and boiled eggs, with orange juice, tea, and coffee to drink.

Eggs & Bread has gone viral on Twitter last week when a man revealed that he paid £20 for his breakfast.

The owner Guy Wilson said that everyone is welcome, whether you're a city broker or just broke.

Another thing that makes the café unusual is that customers just serve themselves - they grab eggs from the basket, toast their own bread, make the drinks themselves, and so on.

The place is more than just a breakfast hub. It's a little sanctuary where people from all walks of life can sit down, talk, relax, and enjoy a simple day while taking money out of the scene.
